My '94 volvo turbo will crank and run but after about 6 seconds it stops. engine is still revving.

Fuel. My best guess is that the fuel pump is somewhat clogged and when you turn the ignition on it will pressurize the fuel system, but when you start the car the fuel pump cant keep the pressure in the fuel lines to keep the engine running, so it stops. this would also most likely be that source of your check engine light telling you that something is wrong with the fuel system.

The check engine light is blinking on my buick century 2003 and the engine is making a noise

If your check engine light is blinking it is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your engine and/or engine control system that needs IMMEDIATE ATTENTION to prevent SEVERE DAMMAGE to your engine or your catalytic converters.

My recommendation is to STOP OPERATING THE VEHICLE and get it towed somewhere so it can be properly diagnosed and repaired.

1997 chevy cavalier got gas last week car is not running right feels like it has no umph to go the engine light used to just be on and now it is blinking

Well, I hope you haven't destroyed your catalytic converter. The Check Engine Light has been trying to tell you to get your engine checked. Since you have chosen to ignore the warning, the problem has gotten much worse. The Check Engine Light blinking is telling you that you are now in the process of destroying some pretty high dollar parts. It will now cost probably several hundred dollars to fix the damage that has already been done, plus you will still have to fix what was wrong with it in the first place....Not a good scenario.

My check engine light keeps blinkin on my 2003 chevy impala and keeps shakin

Take it in, a blinking check engine light is not a good sign. Solid yellow is ok, blinking yellow or red is in need of service. Get the codes checked asap.

Hi! In your situation is hard to tell what's really the cause why your check engine light is blinking. because there to many reason when the light is blinking. The best way to check is use a scanner OBD2 CODE, this will Diagnose your car then will tell what really means why your having the check engine light blinking... This will save you time and money. you can also go to autozone to let them scan for you, and the best part it's FREE of charge, or you can buy it for the lower of $50 or more...
best of luck.

Glad to help.

My check engine check light keeps blinking

The 02 sensor after the the converter is telling you there is a fuel mixtue problem and the converter isn't burning it off. The cat converter itself can be the problem. Have it inspected.

The engine management light keeps goiong on and

If the check engine light comes on, YOU NEED the CODE. this will tell you what problem your engine has noticed and needs to be corrected. Without this, the list of problems could be a mile long......look in you owners manual and see if you can tell the car to give you the can do this through Morse code with a designated blinking light
